Ringo Starr will miss the “beautiful” Charlie Watts.
The 81-year-old musician pays homage to his fellow drummer who died at the age of 80 last month, and Charlie “has a lot of fun.”
Talking to BANG Showbiz and other media to promote his new EP “Change the World”, “Yes, I miss Charlie. He was a beautiful person. He was like a quiet man …
“Me and Charlie, we hung out. We didn’t like living together, living near London, finding ourselves at dinner or gigs.”
And the Beatles legend joked that Charlie had a hard time keeping the Rolling Stones together.
He said, “He had a band that was harder than I was with!”
Ringo’s new EP will be released on Friday (24.09.21).
The veteran musician recorded all the new tracks in his Roccabella West studio, as in his “Zoom In” EP. Ringo has previously revealed that he is working with the record’s “new friends.”
He says: “At the moment I said I wanted to release only the EP, but this is the next EP. What a blessing this year to have a studio at home and collaborate with many great musicians?” Some people have worked with me before, and some new friends. “
The lead single “Let’s Change The World” is an optimistic track featuring backing vocals by Amy Keys, Zelma Davis, Billy Valentine and Darryl Finesse.
On another track, “Just That Way,” Ringo is working with Tony Chen and Zho Davis.
“Coming Undone” represents Ringo’s first collaboration with Linda Perry, who wrote the new track, and “Rock Around The Clock” shows Ringo working with guitarist Joe Walsh.
